Posutoman Burusu (1997, JAP) C-110m. ** D: Sabu (=Hiroyuki Tanaka). Starring Shin'ichi Tsutsumi, Keisuke Horibe, Ren Osugi, Kyôko Toyama, Sabu. Quirky, typically eccentric - although not vintage - Sabu comedy about a lonely postman, who becomes hunted by the police, who believe him to be a hitman working for the mob. Bizarre situations abound, but pace isn't up to Sabu's other efforts. In fact, it resembles that found in the work of Jim Jarmusch, who may be Sabu's main inspiration. English title: POSTMAN BLUES.
